Summary
In the summer of 1754, deep in the wilderness of western Pennsylvania, a very young George Washington suffered his first military defeat, and a centuries-old feud between Great Britain and France was rekindled. The war that followed, which one historian called truly the first world war, would decide the fate of the entire North American continent--not just between Great Britain and France, but for the Spanish and the Native Americans as well. Fought across virgin wilderness, from Nova Scotia to the forks of the Ohio River, the French and Indian War is best remembered for dogged frontier campaigns and the momentous battle of Quebec on the Plains of Abraham--and the seeds of discord sown in its aftermath would give root to the American Revolution. We encounter George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, William Pitt, William Shirley, Edward Braddock, Wolfe and Montcalm, and Major Robert Rogers, a legend misunderstood.--From publisher description
